Partial eclipse of the moon this morning

A treat for the coast and highlands this morning with a partial lunar eclipse.

The eclipse began before 6, and remained visible for some time until the moon slipped below the Western horizon, while the Northern hemisphere saw the full lunar eclipse.

Our next eclipse will be of the Sun on Boxing Day, after that we'll have to wait till January 2020 for another Lunar eclipse.
